A Conversation with End-of-Life Doula, Lynn Principe Golden

00:00 / 28:31

Meet Lynn Golden 

Sacred Passage End of Life Doula
Wedding and Funeral Officaint

I am a mother, a daughter, a sister and a friend. I am a certified End of Life Sacred Passage Doula and Conscious Dying Educator with The Conscious Dying Institute, a Lifecycle Celebrant, a professionally trained artist, yoga instructor, massage therapist and Reiki practitioner with a desire to bring meaning and sacred practices to all transitions in life.

I have been honored to create meaningful ceremonies and to read, sing or simply hold a loving space at bedside while final breaths are taken. Holding space and listening with an open heart to hear stories of love, hope, fear and grief while reflecting a non judgmental awareness is my great passion. While I am based in the Tampa, Florida area, I am available to travel for weddings, end of life ceremonies and workshops.

Spending time with my family, traveling and working on creative projects, are among my favorite things.

What is and End of Life Doula?

An End of Life Doula or Death Doula provides non-medical support and comfort to the dying person and their family, which may include education and guidance as well as emotional, spiritual or practical care from as early as initial diagnosis through bereavement.

We're all just walking each other home.

 "The social workers and nurses who have met Lynn on transition visits have told me what a blessing she is to the patients and Families she has served. Her calming presence and innate knowledge of what people need at such a sensitive time in their lives is what makes her so effective in her role as an end-of-life doula."
